Early Manchester City team news
Back from injury and on to the scoresheet during his side’s midweek win over Marseille, Sergio Aguero will not start tonight’s game, according to his manager, but will be on the bench. Defender Eric Garcia is out for a couple of weeks with an unspecified knock, while midfielder Ilkay Gundogan was expected to undergo a fitness test earlier today.
Early Manchester United team news
Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial sat out Manchester United’s defeat at the hands of RB Leipzig but both are expected to be available for selection today.
With Ole Gunnar Solskjær expected to switch from five at the back to a flat back four, Luke Shaw seems likely to miss out on a place in the starting line-up. Despite his personal horror show against Leipzig, Aaron Wan-Bissaka is expected to start at right-back.
There is speculation that Dean Henderson could start in goal for Manchester United, following another unconvincing performance from David De Gea.
Premier League: Manchester United v Manchester City
Welcome to our coverage of the 183rd Manchester derby, a game that will be played behind closed doors at Old Trafford but is likely to ferociously contested anyway.
United go into the game in seventh place, one point and two places clear of their rivals after 10 games and eager to make amends following their embarrassing midweek exit from the Champions League.
City, by contrast, advanced to the knockout stages of the Champions League with the minimum of fuss but could find themselves nine points of the Premier League pace being set by Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur by close of play this weekend if they lose tonight.
Kick -off at Old Trafford is at 5.30pm (GMT) but stay tuned in the meantime for team news and build-up.
